I'm sorry, I know I've been a bitch tonight, but...

I'm just picturing all my friends in NYC (where I should be) having fun, seeing and hanging out with my man...

it's unbareable.

You Punks Are All Out, Aren't You?

I couldn't help but notice that all the blogs went silent at once, then I realized that it's Friday! Come on, am I the only person here without a life???

Over coffee, we were talking about this annoying magazine salesman that came to my door today. For the life of me, I can't understand why anyone would want to get into that job, (and the ploy of "people are not just buying the magazines, they're buying a future for me" is a load of crap.) Instead, we decided that this kid should have had a better product, like... say... wacky inventions! Something so simple and so silly, that you wonder how you ever did without it! My contribution was a beer mug with an 8 ball in the bottom. Ask a question, take a drink, get the answer! Perfect, eh? My friend's was a re-closeable bread bag. They do it for everything else, why not bread??? No, they expect us to keep track of those annoying little wire thingies! (Yeah, who came up with that one?)

So, what would your invention be? (Or what silly contraption that has already been invented would you buy from a door to door salesman?)

Buzzin' From a Caffeine High!

I've been trying to cut down on my java consumption for the last few days because I was worried about a high blood pressure reading, but that came to a crashing halt today! After having a mocha earlier, I came home and ended up drinking an entire pot of coffee with a friend of mine. Granted, that wouldn't have phased me a week ago, but after not having caffeine in my system for a few days? Let me tell ya, I am buzzing my assssss offff and it feels GREAT!

I know I will be paying for this later, but...

I have a question for all you guys out there...

OK, I know I'm being lazy here and doing 50 post at a time, but this is something I'm curious about because I have yet to make a connection...

Guys, where (other than churches and bars, internet and phone "services") do you go to meet chicks?

Here's a Question For Ya...

Why don't they invent something that takes the hair away for good??? You know they have the technology and the funding, so why don't they do it? It's like the medical profession, they have the cures, but they would rather treat the symptoms...

Here's Something Odd...

But if you think about it, it's completely logical.

I realized today that I may have lost some of my communications skills. After weeks, if not months, of spending most of my time alone or on the internet, I can't hold a normal conversation! I was stuttering, and having a hard time completing a sentence... It was weird!

Poor Jill, I guess she was right, I GOTTA get out more!


Sorry, I had to delete that last post, I was on a pity party for myself that just didn't seem right in the light of day. I do appreciate your response (and support) however, and I hope you will do so again!

It's Official, I'm a Wimp!

OK, so I figure, if I can't make my yearly trek to NYC, I'll go camping instead. I just really need to get away from the house for a few days before I start back at a real job.

Well! After three days of getting my camping gear together, I finally load up the car and head out in spite of the weekend thunderstorm warnings. I figure, what the heck? I'm not afraid of the rain. It's nice out today, and I have the tent and all kinds of entertainment to keep me happy if it starts raining. What I didn't count on was the freezing cold and the fucking SNOW! Yes, snow. In the middle of summer we had snow! Thank goodness I had already come to my senses and had my gear packed before the snow hit, but it was still a major downer that the trip ended so quickly, especially after it took me half a day to get my campsite cleaned up and livable.

Anyway (and this is where you may want to stop reading because it will be boring diary stuff...) Dispite the fact that I spent most of my time cleaning up the site, and setting up and tearing down my gear, it was still a fun trip. My first obstacle came when I was cleaning, I lifted an old log and there was a snake under it! Well, I couldn't let the little guy go and be worried that he would sneak up on me in my sleep or bite my butt when I sit by the fire, but I didn't want to kill him either. So I very gently stepped on him, not enough to hurt him, just enough to get him in a position to grab his neck. After about four tries (he was a slippery sucker) I finally got him! I took him across to the neighboring campsite and gave him a good fling, unfortunately, he landed in a tree! I must have thrown him pretty hard because he wasn't moving. I was afraid that I had killed him after all so I went over to investigate... Of course my fears were eased when the little SOB tried to bite me as I was picking him out of the tree! What graditude! Humph!

The rest of the set up went smoothly, I got a nice fire going and had a bite to eat, then headed to the lake to play with my new kayak. That was the best part and without it, I would have considered the entire trip a bust. I only had about an hour or so to play, but the lake is small enough that I got in a lot of scenery in that time. I wish I would have brought my camera with, but it's not waterproof, and I'm not that comfortable in the kayak yet. A funny part came when I hit a shallow area, I could see the bottom of the lake, which should have eased my fears of capsizing, but it didn't. I just knew that if I turned over there, I would get my feet stuck in that nasty muck! True, I may not drown, but I ask you, which is worse???

I made it back to shore and got the kayak strapped to the car just as it was starting to rain, which was a fortunate stroke. Went back to the campite, put a few more logs on the fire and snuggled into my tent. It was nice to just sit back and relax with my thoughts, listening to the rain hit the tent... Then shortly after dark, the rain let up and I was able to hang out by the fire for a couple of hours, that was fortunate too. What's camping without getting to enjoy a fire? Afterwards, I went back into the tent to sleep for the night, and that was when the Real thunderstorm hit!

Now, I'm not That wimpy, I can handle the thunderstorm because I figure the tent is protecting me from the rain, and if lightning hits, it'll hit the tent post before it hits me, but what I didn't count on was the high winds! As my tent was swaying and pitching all around me, I started worrying that I hadn't put the stakes in deep enough. If they came out, the whole thing would come down on me! But OK, even if that happened, I would still be inside and I had enough weight in the tent to keep myself from blowing away, but then I started thinking about the trees around me! What if there's a dead one close enough to fall on my tent??? It was hell I tell ya! One worry after another! And then the cold kicked in! Ten layers of clothes and two sleeping bags weren't even enough to keep me warm! However, all that extra clothing did provide some padding when my inflatable mattress when flat...

So that was how I spent my night, shivering in the cold, alone with my thoughts (which oddly enough, turned out to be a curse.) I was so happy when morning finally came so I could pack up my shit and get the hell out of there! Back to my nice warm cozy home and my nice hot 'cuzzy! Talk about being spoiled!

I can't wait till next week to try this again!

PS: Things to pack for next trip:
Outdoor extention cord (extra long)
Bottle of vinegar
Camp heater!

What a Wonderful Day!

And probably the best I've had in a long time!

First news first, I bought a boat!

Well, OK, maybe not a boat boat, it's a one person kayak, and I didn't actually buy it, I sort of inherited it when my sister bought a new one, but it floats Damn it! And it's mine! Even though I have no way of getting it to the lake without help because it doesn't fit in my car... lol. I'm still excited about it!

So yesterday, after spending a few hours bike riding, my sister and I headed to the lake to try out our new kayaks, and it was a beautiful day for it. With the trees just coming into bloom and the water being so calm, it was absolutely breathtaking! About the only thing that could have made it better is if we headed back to the campsite afterwards instead of home. But, I'm still hoping for that later this week ;o)

BTW Jill, sis says I can borrow her's, so next week I'm going to make you get off your Sunday couch and go with!

And on the Tails of That Blog...

I'm finding myself obsessed with Kelsey Gramer, Richard Wagner and Aida, lol. Don't ask me why!

The Purpose of Blogs?

Maybe I've been misinformed, but I thought that blogs were a type of "online diary" where you get the chance to meet new people and learn different ideas and deleve into whole new personas, yet I see so many conforming to a particular subject... And sticking to it! Have I got this wrong? Are blogs merely a way of getting the word out on your favorite things and you abandon them when no one shows interest?

I know that the ones I find most interesting are the ones where people are most honest and open and don't stick to a format. People are more complex than that... Or at least, I hope they are!

I'm sorry, I don't mean to get so heavy here, I guess I'm just a bit sad that people seem to credit their entire lives to one or two things when there's so much to be shared...

I Know This is Trivial, But...

I just relized something about the difference between the figure proportions of men and women. If a guy has a small head, it makes him look like he has broader shoulders and a better build (making him more attractive,) if a chick has a small head, it just makes her look fat! Where's the justice in THAT???

Seriously, if there is a "God" he Must be a man, with all the hard work he's done to make women feel inferior...
